On Aug. 27, 2013, more than 8,000 fans of the hit reality series “Big Brother” had signed an online petition requesting CBS to remove contestant Amanda Zuckerman removed from the show.
The Change.org petition penned by Robin Ellis Humphrey argues that Amanda is a “horrible bully” who threatened to kill another cast member as she slept. This fellow house guest, Elissa Slater, was seen being taunted by Amanda on live feeds from the show for more than a day. The petition goes on to state, “many of us are sick to death of watching it go on and we want something done NOW!”
The petition also makes mention of Aaryn Gries and Kaitlin Barnaby, noting they were seen doing and saying “horrible things and nothing was done.”
It further says, “Bullying is not ok” and that seeing a “grown woman” behave this way on television is sickening.
A second petition on Change.org with over 400 supporters also asks for Amanda’s removal from the “Big Brother” house and calls her “vile and cruel.” It also tells CBS that Amanda's behavior is “an outrage especially since you say you’re against bullying.”
In a tweet, the creator of this petition, Zane Rey, wrote that his request will be personally sent via email to the CBS production crew of “Big Brother.”
According to the live feed updates on Joker’s Updates, Amanda’s tirade appeared to end yesterday and she was seen Monday light on TVGN’s “Big Brother After Dark” tearing up about her aggression towards Elissa. In essence she told her pizza boy McCrae that when Elissa is acting “normal” it makes her feel bad for the way she treated her.
